W2K RAID drivers for DL380?

I'm dealing with a DL380 G3 that has a Smart Array 5i controller. I cannot find Windows 2000 Server drivers for it... following support links for the DL380 G3 brings up a link for 5x/6x drivers. Where can I find the drivers to be able to install Windows on this box?

This is the right driver. "x" is a wildcard so the driver supports all the 5 & 6 series raid controllers.

I'd also suggest installing using the Smartstart assisted installation. You should be able to download the latest smartstart (7.60 last time I checked) from HP's site. Burn the ISO to a CD and run commence your installation from this. It will install all the necessary drivers.
